This is a portrait of my little sister @rhodesia21 that I took when we were in Singapore in December…
I find it very amusing how a lot of our older relatives and some of our mom’ sold friends get our names confused.. This happens so often, I’ve learned to respond to people calling me Tumi… I don’t correct them anymore.
I think it’s because I’m only a few years older and growing up I was a very pretty little boy (these are of course my own theories as to why they mixed us up)
We have a baby sister and her handle is @sphelly cute as ever, but the grow up so fast!!

Take us back to a more simpler time, a time where we could be ourselves, a time where potential shone from us, a time before we failed to live up to all the expectations.
I just recently finished working on my debut album… It is currently in mixing, the biggest fear any parent (artist) has, is sending their child out into the world… You never know how they will be received or if they are even ready for all the heart break that lies ahead.
These two Aryan sisters in a small village called Dahno in India live such a humble life and seem to have everything the need, but most importantly they seemed to be absolutely happy.
Today I day one of my operation “get back into shape” and this is how I’m looking at myself in the mirror as we speak thinking: “You look disgusting and you need to work harder”
Then I have a counter thought: “but you still have time till summer, don’t stress too much”
Aaahh!!! So many conflicting thoughts in my head right now!
Best way to succeed in life is to act on the advice you give to others.
I often give very sound advice, that I should also be adhering to myself… Most of us won’t admit when we need a little bot of guidance and that is why some of us reach a ceiling that we can’t surpass.
Take advice as well as you give it.
I tend to tell people to post what they want on Instagram, so long as they are able to proudly own that image.
Sometimes I’m tempted to post some abstract shots… Then I think, what if they don’t like it.. I’m quickly reminded by a small voice in my head saying: “if you do it for others, you can never make yourself happy and you will die unfulfilled.”
The best part of waking up is, hitting the snooze button.
10… more… minutes
Today, I would like you to humble yourself and give back 67minutes of your day to someone who needs you more than you’ll ever understand, it is about putting yourself in someone else’s shoes and empathising… Don’t be different, be outstanding!
The meek shall not inherit the earth.
Thank you @JohnnieWalkerSA for a lovely evening of #meetyourmatchsa

It’s pretty funny when I come across people who misspell Desert, by turning it into a delicious Dessert.. I know you’re probably thinking I’m making this up, but it happens so often I’m surprised you haven’t come across it.
This is @mayur_malusare the “Dessert” bandit, you can find him perusing the baron dunes of Nubra valley (that’s if he is not in Mumbai)
Very cool guy, with a very documentative style feed based in Mumbai India.
Check him out!

While you see hardship, they see home..
It is often very difficult to look beyond your current difficulties, but it only takes one moment to change it forever.
Always be ready for that defining moment, it may not present itself dressed in bells and whistles, it may not be shinny or attractive, it may not even have your name on it, but when it comes you will know that it belongs to you.
What I took away from these kids here was; Always be grateful for what you have, because at that moment, it is Everything that you can possibly have.
